What Owners Say

"Really good control even on twisty highways. Drives more like a car than a large van. Makes me feel safe with family."

Anonymous, MD (2010 Honda Odyssey)

"Odyssey handling was superb when doing sharp maneuvering to avoid hitting another driver who made a U-turn directly in front of my vehicle."

"It drives really well and handles like a car not a van"

"Good excelleration"

NORM W., IA (2010 Honda Odyssey)

"She accelerates very well especially when having to pass another vehicle on the highway. Highway gas mileage is amazing for a minivan. City mileage is not bad but our city has a lot of lights so that makes it hard. She handles very well especially in turns and corners. I find it a very pleasant driving experience!"

TANIA S., ON (2010 Honda Odyssey)

"Very good"

MATTHEW R., OH (2010 Honda Odyssey)

"Really satisfied as a whole. However, I was very disappointed with it's performance in the snow. It is front wheel drive with very good quality all season radials and there were a few instances the first year we owned it where it became stuck or extremely difficult to drive in a minimal snow fall. I needed to purchase snow tires to change off and on with the all-season radials that I was already using. The snow tires greatly improved the snow driving. This vehicle is an extra in our family now s"

ROBERT G., CT (2010 Honda Odyssey)

"Transmission doesn't sound good even early in ownership. There was a maintenance bulletin early in ownership about the transmission but not a emote all or anything - where we brought it in and they did something but noise is still noticeable. Because of this and past issues with our odyssey transmissions we opted for extended warranty with this one."

CRAIG S., CT (2010 Honda Odyssey)

"Very good handling in either winter conditions or regular. This car excels in getting you out of your parking spot in snowy conditions. We've been in situations where other cars would have probably gotten off the road and our Odyssey kept our four weeks on the road. Our 6 cyclinder engine provides ample power for any condition and runs smooth as a kitten. Good to wind capacity."

ROGER B., QC (2010 Honda Odyssey)

"I have difficulty getting in and out of sedans and mini-vans like our old Dodge Grand Caravan. Our Honda Odyssey has leather seats that are exactly the right height to just put my hip on the edge of the seat and it's like magic, I just slide in with no additional effort! I've had a total knee surgery and there is plenty of room to get my legs in without bumping my knees and causing pain. LOVE THIS ! I also LOVE the rear view side mirrors. I can't believe how easy it is to see traffic that befor"

"One of the few cars that has a place to put my purse. All the cars seem to have a center console and if there is a passenger I have no place to put my purse. Designers need to realize women carry purses and don"t want to hold them on their laps while driving."

Anonymous, TX (2010 Honda Odyssey)

"The driving expérience is excellent. I've driven this car for thousands of kilometers on several occasions and it performed superbly. Visibility is excellent in the driving position. The only thing that was lacking was a backup camera that I added recently with a Garmin DriveSmartT 70LMT GPS that had that feature (added the BCT 30 Wireless Backup Camera). My wife had a major right angle accident with my previous 1999 Odyssey and got out without a scratch though the car was a complete loss."

ROGER B., QC (2010 Honda Odyssey)

"I had trouble with the seals on the windows in the front row. The driver's side seal even leaks water in heavy rain. It has been replaced at least once. This is my second Odyssey previous was a 2004. Absolutely loved the 2004 so I did not shop around when purchasing the 2010. I regret that. Not anywhere close to as satisfied with the newer model."

"This is a very good minivan and it looks good, drives very well, lots of power, good seating and is my "heavy/bulking" load carrier. The rear seats fold away. I wish the middle ones did also but then they probably wouldn't be as comfortable and they are. Down sides include no backup camera because this van has poor backup visibility even after I installed brighter backup bulbs. Also, the rear-most side windows don't vent like we had in our previous Chrysler Corp vans and like Toyota has. This fe"
